Legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar came forward to express his emotions after his son Arjun Tendulkar made his debut for Mumbai Indians against Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 on Sunday.
Sachin shared a special tweet for his son after Mumbai registered a five-wicket victory. “Arjun, today you have taken another important step in your journey as a cricketer. As your father, someone who loves you and is passionate about the game, I know you will continue to give the game the respect it deserves and the game will love you back. You have worked very hard to reach here, and I am sure you will continue to do so. This is the start of a beautiful journey. All the best,” Sachin wrote in his tweet.
